Actor Angelica Ross boarded the cast of Ryan Murphy's 'American Horror Story: 1984' and said she is overjoyed to script history as the first trans artiste to bag two series regular roles.
Angelica Ross, who had a breakout role as Candy in Ryan Murphy's 'Pose', took to Twitter on Wednesday to share the news.
The news came shortly after an important episode on 'Pose', which shone a light on violence against trans women of colour through Candy's character. Ryan Murphy, while praising Janet Mock for being a "star" writer on the acclaimed FX drama, also announced Ross' casting in 'AHS: 1984'.
"Though she will always be our Candy, and our show suffers this incredible loss, I am elated that the world will get much more Angelica.
"She is joining the American Horror Story family in another unforgettable role. Congrats Angelica for making history, leaping from #PoseFX to #AHS1984. Welcome to the #AHS family!" the co-showrunner wrote on Instagram.
Angelica Ross's casting follows news that 'AHS' mainstay Sarah Paulson will not return in a series-regular role for its upcoming ninth season. It was reported earlier this year that AHS mainstays Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson will not be in this season. But with Ross’ addition, surely no one will notice. She’ll star opposite Emma Roberts and Gus Kenworthy.
Murphy confirmed the news in an Instagram post.“Though she will always be our Candy, and our show suffers this incredible loss, I am elated that the world will get much more Angelica,” he said. “She is joining the American Horror Story family in another unforgettable role.”
